4 Days on the Rim / A Photo Essay / Wild Pacific Trail

Nautilaus barTofino, British Columbia
Pacific Rim

South of Tofino on Vancouver Island is a town called Ucluelet which means “people of the safe harbour” in the indigenous Nootka language.
It might have been safe for the Natives, but many a Whiteman and ships perished on that coast over the centuries.

Near Ucluelet is the Wild Pacific Trail – where Rose decided to go for a hike. 

Suggested: A windbreaker, a walking stick, some water, and snacks.

And a camera.

This rugged Pacific escarpment has another name and reputation.

Many a sailor and ship were lost on this wind lashed coast.

Rugged and ragged.

There’s several rest points along the way.

Even in overcast the ocean is still beautiful.

Time for another rest.

    That’s even worse than the rocks along Gloucester and Cape Ann!

      Even with today’s tech they still have functioning lighthouses and buoys.
